A quarter page of cliches about how bubble gum media is bad pitched at an imaginary audience who has never heard the term “bubble gum media” is the pinnacle of bubble gum media, and exactly the trend in medium posts that I hate. If you’re going to write some unoriginal content, at least make your post thirty pages long and entertaining like Cuepoint and Backchannel do.
